We are looking for an ambitious postdoctoral researcher to join the newly established Proteomics & Chromatin Biology group at the Department of Molecular Biology, Radboud University Nijmegen (Netherlands). As a postdoctoral researcher you will employ state-of-the-art quantitative mass spectrometry technology and genome-wide sequencing approaches to study epigenetic mechanisms of gene expression regulation in intestinal mouse and human (tumor) organoid cultures.
You will be involved in generating as well as in analysing/mining genome-wide profiles and mass spec data using bioinformatics tools. The project is embedded in a highly experienced and interactive research department and is part of the NWO Gravitation Programme ‘Cancer GenomiCs Netherlands’.
The Department of Molecular Biology at Radboud University Nijmegen/Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences is one of the leading European research departments that use state-of-the-art genomic and proteomic technologies and bioinformatics. Research in the department focuses on stem cells, nuclear pathways in cancer, genetic aspects of haematopoiesis, chromatin motors, and zebrafish development. The department currently consists of 30 PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, and three tenured and two tenure-track staff, and provides a vibrant and international working environment. The department has a long-standing record in the regulation of gene expression and actively participates in many European and world-wide consortia, including BLUEPRINT, IHEC and ICGC. The department runs its own NGS sequencer, an nLC-MS/MS mass spectrometer, and accommodates a bioinformatics team.
What we expect from you
You should have a PhD in molecular biology, biochemistry or biomedical sciences. Protein biochemistry expertise as well as hands-on experience in genome-wide approaches and bioinformatics skills are highly advantageous.http://www.eurosciencejobs.com/job_display/89163/Postdoctoral_Position_in_Proteomics_and_Intestinal_Organoid_Biology_Radboud_University_Nijmegen_Faculty_of_Science_Nijmegen_Netherlands
